Wondering who else is taking Phenibut here. Just started on 250-500mg and noticing some sedating and relaxing effects. Wondering what therapeutic effects might be possible past the 250-500mg dosage range.

Are the withdrawals really much worse than lyrica/gabapentin withdrawals? I abuse my scripts and always end up in terrible withdrawal but it's still manageable. I was thinking about copping some of this shit to keep me functional 2 weeks out of every month.

The only sources I can find online suggest that phenibut withdrawals don't become bad until you're doing 50+ grams daily. No idea how they compare to lyrica or gabapentin.

Those were from circlejerk posts, presumably from users. Based on user reports from low dosage addictions, the withdrawals only seem as bad as very light /opi/ withdrawals.
I do agree that the phenibut marketing is highly unethical though. If phenibut ever became a popular street drug in the USA you can bet your ass that a shitload of the companies that sell it would be facing the same kind of backlash as Purdue, if not worse.

On the primary websites that have quality shit that everybody buys from? Nothing. But there are some shadier websites that:
>advise beginning users to start with ridiculously high dosages, for a drug that already builds tolerance obscenely fast
>purposefully use nomenclature of phenibut that is difficult to search for online without decent knowledge of chemistry
>don't list dosages if contained in a blend of other substances
>state that phenibut is not at all addictive or has no side effects

It's only a few bad apples, but if phenibut ever took off on the streets they'd be the first ones to go down and would make the whole industry look shittier by association.

I don't recommend it. I used it for a semester of university years ago. I don't recall my doses, but I found that a low dose would make me feel great (not intoxicated). More sociable with a floaty feeling and generally positive disposition. A higher dose was quite different, with a strong body and a pleasant blurry feeling kind of like anesthesia after effects or the come up on Z drugs, but it would stay in the early phase and never get more intense. Made me need to lie down eventually. After a month or so of using quite regularly though not every day I ran out and didn't think much of it. Didn't have the desire to order any more. Within 48 hours I jjust felt miserable. For me it was exactly like major depression. I have also had relatively minor opiate withdrawal and while phenibut has no physical symptoms of withdrawal, the psychological dampening effect was worse than with opiates.

Not worth it, imo. I can see why someone might an hero after ending a more substantial habit.

The rebound anxiety is surprisingly brutal, especially compared to opiates and it's part of the reason I try to dose it like ecstasy now: once or twice a month, with plenty of time to recover afterwards.
I don't know if it'd work for you, but for me the difference between that early phase and being knocked on my ass was exercise. Also it's pretty nice because if I get the compulsion to redose I can just replace it with more exercise to re-potentiate.

it's completely legal here idk what you mean dude just order it online

no sourcing but all that but if you google "buy phenibut" literally the first one that comes up is a reputable site with decent prices, they also sell adrafinil which is very cash but really hard on your liver I've heard, I still like it, adrafinil+phenibut is genuinely a good time and is a real tangible buzz bordering on what some might call a high if you take 3-5g of phenibut, which I know is kind of a lot but it really does change your head space

You can seriously over do it with phenibut though, as in really bizarre hallucinations, including weird sensory ones like a pins and needles sensation in the extremities and brain zaps, bizarre very realistic hallucinations like frames of a dream superimposed on your vision, lots of spontaneous images in your minds eye

Now that I think of it I wonder what causes that, the only thing I can think of is its antagonism of voltage-dependent calcium channels, and I recall having a similar experience on an exceptionally high dose of gabapentin which also does that so maybe that's it?

I would not be averse to this. Like I said I haven't tried phenibut since this experience but I wouldn't say it is worthless or should never be touched. I think every fortnight is to often to take MDMA, but it might be alright for phenibut; your idea is correct. But with that kind of game plan you basically accept that the drug is purely recreational. Unless you have something specific which only happens every two weeks that you need to be calm and serene for, all you're getting is a high and nothing of therapeutic. That's fine though. Maybe I will try phenibut again if I am bored and want to chill for a day. But I had my bad experience and the high wasn't that great so I am kind of turned off.
I never had anything like these hallucinations. I don't remember my doses, but I definitely tried quite a bit one time, maybe not 7 grams though.

I bought 500mg capsules to see if they'd help for anxiety attacks and maybe if they had recreational potential. I've never had them, but I'm looking forward to maybe trying Rx benzos.

I get a really bad anxiety attack about once or twice a week when feeling lonely, thinking about cringey moments in the past, or how I've wasted my life / never had a life in the first place.
When that happens I take one-two(500mg/1g) caps depending on severity and I never exceed 3 caps a day. I also never try to use phenibut two days in a row. No matter how bad I feel I just grin and bear it. Maybe do some sober escapist shit instead; switch up my routine.

The most I've ever taken is 4 at once(2g) and I just felt really groggy. Like I'd taken 100mg of DPH, except the body-load was like a quarter of how DPH feels. Almost no hangover in the morning after I woke up, unlike DPH.

I found almost zero recreational potential in that dose and I'm hesitant to go over that, even if it has a high safety profile, simply because of the lack of documentation and what I see as an extremely small sample of recreational users giving solid advice.

You should talk to a GP and get some benzos. Maybe sublingual lorazepam for the more severe anxiety attacks (they kick in quickly).

This shit is really really good, but as others have said, the withdrawals can be somewhat severe. I've gone through it probably 3-4 times.

The first time is the worst, easily, because it's significantly worse than you expect it to be.

>>132322 was correct in describing cold turkey cessation as "feeling like a major depressive episode". Very easy to imagine someone who isn't used to feeling that way doing something rash in the thick of it.

I've found that I can dose (recreationally) at approximately 1500-2000mg 2-3 times per week, without noticing a significant buildup in tolerance, or withdrawal effects, while retaining some of the anxiolytic effects for ~1.5-2 days after each dose. If I push it to 2500-3000, I start nodding like a motherfuck, but without the pleasant body load/euphoria of an opiate, followed by the best sleep of my life.

The time of onset is a few hours, depending on how full your stomach is/its contents and all that. I find the peak is somewhere around 5-7 hours after ingestion, but it lingers for quite some time, if I recall correctly the half-life of it is longer than average/longer than you'd expect.

I wouldn't think you'd need to taper unless you've experienced withdrawals before or you've been dosing hard for months now. Stopping and then proceeding with caution afterwards would be a good idea though, regardless of how you do it.
Also the rebound anxiety I was talking about wasn't even from withdrawals - I just snap back HARD after it leaves my system.

Yeah, two weeks isn't that bad. What kind of dosage?

When I've tapered back from, like... 9 months (?) of daily 3000+ doses (Don't go that far, it sucks) I did it over a couple weeks, edging back by 500 every few days. That seemed sufficient to ameliorate most of the withdrawal symptoms.

What the other guy was talking about was more like, if you're taking Phenibut to help with anxiety, and it's helping, the anxiety usually feels much worse by way of comparison when it comes back. You might feel kinda shitty emotionally for a day or two, but you're probably fine.

The only other concern is probably minor insomnia.

>major depressive episode withdrawal
Sounds basically identical to the withdrawal I go through every month from gabapentin abuse minus the fever, severe nerve pain, itching and nausea. I'm probably gonna buy some of this shit because it sounds like it'll fix the crippling depression that takes up nearly half of my life. I get really severe physical symptoms too depending on how long I binge on gabapentinoids, but the crippling depression I get coming off gaba/pregabalin seriously is fucking my life up. It'd be really nice to have something to fall back on to help me function when I don't have scripts or indian pills. Currently I need alcohol and opiates or weed when I don't have gabas or lyrica, and being on probation and poor as fuck I've been ruining all of my personal relationships because of the lethargic crippling depression. As long as the withdrawal isn't any worse than a high dose lyrica habit, I'm gonna go for it even if I can't expect to actually feel fucked up from it.

Plus the slow comedown sounds like it would be better for your body getting used to it.
How long of use does it take with GHB/Phenibut before you really need to start worrying about withdrawals? I've been on it for only about a month but I have a very high tolerance right now. And how long do I have to wait before I will see the absolute worst of it? I'm thinking it might be good to just space out doses as much as possible to see first if I can quit cold turkey and second if it helps lower my tolerance on the way by taking breaks.

I'm just going to say that myself and at least two other friends who got into phenibut two years ago have all had at least one grand mal seizure after quitting and I've personally had 3. Never an issue until we decided to go on in a big powder order and split it. We were taking reasonable doses using no less than a gram a day, but did it for about half a year.

Anyway, be easy with this stuff. Sometimes I still miss how well it helped me communicate and feel like I was on top of my game, but it isn't worth the side effects that quitting comes with.

Honestly can't imagine how phenibut withdrawals could be worse than GHB withdrawals. Taking one major dose of phenibut after the glutamate excitotoxicity of GHB made it so I couldn't even taper without being ridiculously miserable, I don't see how it could be worse.

literally came to this board to ask about phenibut
stuff is great, it makes me love being alive, more confident, more motivation, zero anxiety, better sleep, etc etc etc
however i was wondering if anyone has a relatively tried&true method of dosing. i was taking 2000-3000mg every other day but tolerance builds up fast and coming off it is painful. is it better to take it a few days in a row then take a while off, or to just dose once or twice a week?

can't do it any more than twice a week max though, but with phenibut i guess that's to be expected. i learned the hard way because i thought cycling my downers would prevent addiction to any one thing (wrong, you get addicted to all of them).

i still take it every once in a while, but only once a month, if that.

For expanding your social circle/working on treating anxiety, use it at low doses continually for a single month while undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy and then immediately discontinue using it. This is how the drug is used in the former USSR where it is prescribed for anxiety. Tolerance takes some time to dissipate. Since you already have something of a tolerance and usage pattern, if you wanted to do this you would probably need to take a few weeks/months off.
For recreational use, take your dose once a week MAX, but it's much better if you wait 2 weeks+. Treat it sort of like you might treat ecstasy (the after effects can sometimes be like the Tuesday blues,) except know that you're not waiting for a biochemical to build up in your system but instead you're waiting to prevent yourself from becoming addicted.
